"State of the Art of Computer Animation" is a Pacific Arts compilation video of several early 1980s examples of computer animation. Unlike many compilations such as Beyond the Mind's Eye and similar videos, this compilation shows each video in its entirety with its original audio.
Some historically notable pieces included in the compilation:
- Symbolic's "Stanley and Stella in: Breaking The Ice"
- Apollo Computer's "Fair Play"
- The making of a Robert Abel and Associates commercial, with very early examples of motion capture against a human model
...as well as early examples of military, geological, and space exploration animation.
